HE Grenade Expert Premature Burial Defuse This! Three the Hard Way

The High Explosive Grenade damages enemies in its blast radius. Although an HE nade can't kill an enemy with 100HP, it chews up unarmored targets and enemies unlucky enough to be very near the blast. This type of nade is very effective at finishing off wounded players around the corner, in tight-knit areas such as hallways, and in rounds where the enemy is lacking armor. It also significantly slows enemies caught in its blast radius, which can make it a good choice before peeking a corner.
